Ted was a Sgt. 1/Class  at North Sydney Police Station.

Somewhat of a local legend, with a tough reputation, that was not quite true, but he promoted it.

He served all of his time at North Sydney from constable to senior sergeant.

A native of Temora, Ted worked as a loco fireman prior to joining the cops.

      • Nearly forty years ago I met a big man with a big voice who was very special to my cousin Maureen.  His name was Teddy.  I knew then that, just like the teddy bear, he would always be there to love and protect her. And he has been. And he still is. Even though he is no longer here physically  his love is still holding you tenderly, Maureen. Remember his voice, remember his smile and the little endearments that he had just for you – he is still beside you. He still loves you. And so do we.
